Walailak University co-hosted an international online training Climate Smart Agriculture. Interested parties from 8 countries participated.
Walailak University (WU) co-hosted Organized an international training program entitled Climate Smart Agriculture: Smart Farming Practices Online Workshop in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with 70 participants from eight countries participating online.
Associate Professor Dr. Krisanadej Charoensuthasinee Head of Research facilitythe of School Science, Walailak University, revealed that the Ministry of Education, together with the Southeast Asian Ministers of Education Organization STEM Regional Center (SEAMEO STEM-ED), United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and Walailak University by Center of Excellence in Ecology, Forecasting and Management Organized an international training project on Smart Agriculture for Climate Change: Climate Smart Agriculture: Smart Farming Practices Online Workshop during 6-24 September 2021, with 70 participants from 8 countries: China, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand. Attend online training using the location to broadcast the training live from Walailak University and Siam Pomelo orchard Nakhon Si Thammarat Province
Associate Professor Dr. Krisanadej Charoensuthasinee said that this training has an important goal to pass on the knowledge of smart agriculture in Thailand to the participants. Responding to Climate Change Challenges Strengthening cooperation in adapting to changes in the agricultural sector Help promote and develop agriculture effectively. and prepare for food security Importantly, this is consistent with the Sustainable Development Guidelines of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Article 2, End Hunger. achieve food security and improve nutrition and promoting sustainable agriculture; and Article 17, strengthening how to implement and revitalizing global partnerships for sustainable development.
For the training activities, there are workshops on topics such as the use of agricultural innovations to support climate change. Using technology to help manage farmland properly Using Weather Forecasts in Cultivation Learn about the effects of the weather. The use of technology assists in weather forecasting and warning systems. Reducing the risk of inclement weather Using sensor technology and IoT (Internet of Things), etc.
Associate Professor Dr. Krisanadej Charoensuthasinee went on to say that Climate change affects agricultural crop production. Therefore, smart farming is an important goal of 21st century farming if farmers use technology that can accurately collect data. There are techniques for making decisions on the right information. It reduces costs and can control the quality of the output. Create production standards more efficiently.
“Center of Excellence in Ecology, Forecasting and Management More than 15 years of experience in implementing sensor technology. automatic weather station Soil measuring station with soil moisture sensor Soil temperature and leaf surface moisture sensor air relative humidity sensor IoT environmental camera technology in agriculture We are experts in weather and soil data used for smart farming. This training is expected that the participants will bring the knowledge gained. To extend modern agriculture, apply technology and develop agricultural systems in their own country effectively. to further develop agricultural products and a better quality of life.” Associate Professor Dr. Krisanadej Charoensuthasinee said.
